Music Fusion was established in 2008

Our studio, live room and office are based in The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre in Havant. This gives us access to creative and friendly breakout spaces, front of house, café and a performance venue. Even though our studio is based in Havant, our young people often travel up to 80+ miles (round trip) to attend sessions.

We specialise in working with young people experiencing challenging life circumstances.

This includes poor mental / physical health, from backgrounds of extreme poverty, young offenders, drug and alcohol abusers, not in employment or mainstream education, disabled, neuro-diverse, BAME and LGBTQ+. The young people we work with often demonstrate anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and trauma. Music Fusion is a safe place for them to take a breath, connect, make friends and great music. We give them a voice, a platform and a cause to get behind.

We offer much needed help at a critical moment in young peoples lives.

Through music, positive role models and peer support, we aim to build our young people’s empathy, critical thinking, self-esteem, confidence and resilience. Through the positive social narrative of their music, we aim to build back bridges between the young people and their communities.

Supporting young artist development

Music Lab (Funded by Youth Music) provides regular sustained music making opportunities that enable young people to progress their skills through taster sessions, 1-2-1 mentoring, rehearsing, recording and performing as well as artist development. The programme specialises in contemporary genres / new music. We aim to help young people for as long as they need it, not just for a school term. Regardless of age or ability, everyone gets a shot. We don’t believe in showboating our young people. Everyone is equal in our eyes.

A clear musical progression route for young people to follow.

• Try out an instrument
• Learn to sing / rap
• Write their own material
• Rehearse and record their own track
• Collaborate with other young artists
• Release material via our record label
• Film a video
• Perform

Strong Choice Music – young people's music label

a non-for-profit music label set up by Music Fusion.

A much needed solution to the ongoing problem of representing young artists.
The label is a platform for young people to promote responsible thinking and positive social action through their music.


The Mavericks Programme was set up in 2011 in response to growing tensions between rival estates in and around Portsmouth. Mavericks aims to show young people there are always options in life other than crime and violence. Our young people use their stories / music to help inspire others.

Mavericks shows the path to a bigger picture, a better perspective. Going to prison for a postcode or a rift on social media is the biggest waste of a life. The project brings everyone together to celebrate their individual talents and show how people from different areas can put aside their differences, make peace and collaborate to make great things happen.
